  13. Hi Ive got 10 acres and 25 forest, 15 years experience, in Vermont. I can’t swing it on my own but If you’ve got money and desire there’s room for someone to invest here and help me or start their own farm with some help. I thought the right vet could be a great partner. I currently do berries, flowers, a camp, and graze heifers.

  16. Hi – I am looking into starting a veterans to farmers coalition Center at the West L.A. V.A. Medical Center – North Campus Vets’ Garden. It has 16 acres of land. In my personnel opinion it would be a great place to start a place to train Veterans to start a new career in agriculture and basic farming skills. At this time I am doing my home work in on the internet. The property has been abandon, and needs some major face lift. I need all the help I can get. Could you help me to start this adventure in helping Veteran to start a new career in this area of farming.

    • That’s really exciting Glen. Please let me know when you get it up and running so I can post the opportunity on the site.
